    That's not true. Most Easter Eggers have red earlobes and their eggs are any color (pink, green, blue, brown, cream, or white). The earlobe color deal is white earlobes=white eggs, red earlobes=brown or colored eggs, and if you have Silkies, they have metallic blue earlobes and lay a creamy colored egg.

    How old is your pullet? My pullets didn't get their true color earlobes until they got around 5 months, and before that they were a pale creamy color. They are red now.
